to provide highly dynamic capabilities to model and simulate time-varying traffic flows (peak & off-peak periods) combined with the influence of road geometry and environmental affects to produce a realistic traffic simulation that will identify undesired problem areas that can’t be forecasted or analyzed with static, average based systems.
@SIM models and captures the entire network of roads, bridges, buildings, vehicles, traffic lights,
road signs, lighting, pedestrians, etc. into a realistic representation.
@SIM sources 3D model information from …
@SIM assembles the complete network of 3D models into a realistic gaming engine. This
provides the @SIM users the flexibility to navigate and travel the virtual world at ease. It gives
the users the wings to fly around freely while observing the traffic flows or take a “1st person”
view (as if sitting in a vehicle).
@SIM’s ITSE incorporates the following features:
@SIM’s ITSE supports Macroscopic and Microscopic approaches that takes into account
environmental factors such as elevation, time of day, light and weather conditions.
To provide a more realistic simulation @SIM integrates with external data sources to integrate historical or live traffic data in its ITSE engine. This enables @SIM to show realistic traffic simulations that can simulate traffic flow of a given date and a time interval to be utilized in users traffic studies.
Using the Microscopic model with ITSE @SIM can identify problem areas in the traffic network.
